Westwood Lake

Westwood Lake Park is one of Nanaimo’s best loved parks. Sandy beaches, and lifeguards on duty in the summer make it a great swimming spot for families. Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Benson it is a year round destination. There is a 5.51km trail around the lake, popular with walkers and runners. The trail is well groomed and apart from a steep knoll towards the west end of the lake trail is considered an easy walking trail towards the south end of the trail. There are shorter loops .There are dog off leash areas located along the hydro available runs along the hydro lines easement lands.
